Its One Thing You Really Own So Use It !

THESE ARE DIFFICULT AND STRESSFUL TIMES FOR MANY AND IT IS EASY TO DROWN OUR MINDS WITH NEGATIVE THOUGHTS. SOMETIMES WE CAN GET SO LOW THAT WE STOP SEEING THE LIGHT, IT BECOMES HARDER AND HARDER TO ESCAPE THE DARKNESS.

YOU ARE WHEREVER YOUR THOUGHTS ARE. EVEN IF YOUR HEART IS HEAVY AND YOUR MIND IS CONSTRICTED, YOU STILL HAVE THE POWER TO LIFT YOURSELF UP BY CHANGING YOUR THOUGHTS.

TODAY COME UP WITH A THOUGHT THAT CHANGES YOUR VIEW OF THE WORLD FOR THE BETTER. AND STICK WITH THAT THOUGHT ALL DAY. THEN TOMORROW COME UP WITH ANOTHER THOUGHT THAT IMPROVES YOUR DAY AGAIN.

IT WON,T MIRACULOUSLY MAKE YOUR PROBLEMS DISAPPEAR BUT IT WILL MAKE THE WORLD SEEM A BETTER PLACE AND STRENGTHEN YOUR ABILITY TO COPE WITH LIVES DAILY MISSILES AND VIEW THEM FROM A DIFFERENT PERSPECTIVE.

TRY IT TODAY AND SEE IF IT MAKES A DIFFERENCE TO YOU.

MIDWEEK MANTRA : BRIGHTEN SOMEONES LIFE TODAY

YOUR WEEKLY DOSE OF INSPIRATION, TASKS AND HOPE TO GET YOU THROUGH YOUR WEEK ON A POSITIVE STRONGER MINDSET. TOO OFTEN WE DWELL ON NEGATIVE ASPECTS IN THE WORLD . THIS WEEKLY SLOT IS HERE TO UPLIFT, A SMALL OASIS OF CALM IN A HECTIC WORLD.

DURING MY GUIDED MORNING MEDITATION TODAY THE FOCUS WAS “SHINE YOUR LIGHT ON SOMEONE ELSE” WHAT A GREAT MESSAGE THAT I WANTED TO SHARE WITH MY FOLLOWERS TODAY.

The Knock On Effect

TODAYS MENTALITY IS QUITE INSULAR WITH SO MUCH FOCUS ON ONES OWN MENTAL HEALTH . WE ARE ENCOURAGED TO THINK ABOUT OURSELVES AND CONCENTRATE INWARDLY. BUT ONE OF THE BEST WAYS OF IMPROVING MENTAL HEALTH IS TO THINK MORE ABOUT OTHER PEOPLE AND WHAT YOU CAN DO FOR THEM THE REWARDS ARE GREAT AND THIS REALLY WORKS. IMAGINE BRINGING SOME SUNSHINE AND HAPPINESS INTO SOMEONES LIFE JUST BY YOUR OWN ACTIONS AND WORDS. IT DOES NOT HAVE TO BE AN ELABORATE GESTURE IT MAYBE JUST SOME KIND WORDS OR A HANDWRITTEN CARD.

SO, TODAY I WANT YOU TO THINK HOW YOU CAN BRIGHTEN SOMEONES DAY. THIS COULD JUST BE A STRANGER OR A PERSON IN YOUR LIFE THAT YOU HAVE BEEN TAKING FOR GRANTED OR MAYBE A FRIEND YOU HAVE NOT BEEN IN CONTACT FOR A WHILE.

SUGGESTIONS ……..CHOOSE TO SMILE AT EVERYONE YOU PASS ON THE STREET TODAY. MAKE A PHONE CALL TO SOMEONE THAT MAY BE LONELY OR VULNERABLE. COOK A SPECIAL MEAL FROM SCRATCH. AS IT IS SPRING BUY SOMEONE A BLOOM IN A POT FOR THEM TO SEE EVERYDAY.

HAVE FUN WITH THIS ONE BE INVENTIVE , MAKE IT SPECIAL. ENJOY THE KNOCK ON EFFECT.

REMEMBER WHEN YOU BRIGHTEN SOMEONES DAY YOU GET TO BATHE IN THE REFLECTIVE LIGHT.

MIDWEEK MANTRA : ITS NOT ALL ABOUT YOU (OR ME)

OKAY SO I ALWAYS MAKE THIS WEEKLY GET TOGETHER ABOUT YOU AND HOW WE CAN SUPPORT YOU. BUT TODAY I WANT TO TAKE THAT SELF FOCUS TO THE WIDER WORLD. THERE IS SO MUCH GOING ON IN THE WORLD AT THE MOMENT WE HAVE BEEN THROUGH ONE OF THE TUMULTUOUS PERIODS DURING THE LAST 3 YEARS THAT I CAN REMEMBER. CERTAINLY BY BEING ISOLATED AND LOCKED DOWN DURING 2020 AND 2021 HAS CAUSED US TO BECOME MORE INSULAR. BUT SOMETHING MORE IS AT PLAY , THE WIDER UNIVERSE, REFUGEES DISPLACED FROM THEIR HOMES AND FAMILY. NEIGHBOURS FALLING ON HARD TIMES. BUSINESSES TRYING TO MAKE ENDS MEET.

SO TODAY FOCUS ON THE WIDER WORLD . FOCUS ON OTHER PEOPLES PROBLEMS. IDENTIFY A WAY TO HELP THEM WITH NO PAYBACK FOR YOURSELF. ALTHOUGH I PROMISE YOU YOU WILL FEEL BETTER MENTALLY WHEN YOU ABSORB YOURSELF IN ANOTHER’S NEEDS RATHER THAN ON YOUR OWN. THERE IS A SCHOOL OF BELIEF THAT DEPRESSION IS CAUSED BY A CONCENTRATION ON SELF INSTEAD OF OTHERS. WHO KNOWS. YOUR PROBLEMS MAY DIMINISH WHEN FACED WITH OTHER PEOPLES EVEN BIGGER PROBLEMS.

RE ALIGN YOUR FOCUS FOR ONE WEEK. YOU MAY FIND A REWARD HERE AND CONTINUE.

MIDWEEK MANTRA: THE POWER OF THE MIND- CROSS THE BRIDGE

YOUR WEEKLY DOSE OF POSITIVITY TO UPLIFT YOUR SPIRITS IN AN UNCERTAIN WORLD. LETS EXPLORE TOGETHER FOR INSPIRATION THROUGH MANTRAS, TASKS AND THOUGHTS TO EXERCISE OUR MENTAL HEALTH AND LIFT US TO A BETTER PLACE.

IS YOUR BIGGEST ENEMY YOUR OWN MIND ?

YOUR SUBCONSCIOUS CAN BE YOUR BEST FRIEND OR YOUR WORST ENEMY. IT IS WISE TO BE AWARE OF YOUR SUBCONSCIOUS MIND AS MUCH AS YOUR CONSCIOUS MIND. YOUR LIFE EXPERIENCES HAVE PROGRAMMED YOUR SUBCONSCIOUSNESS AND MAKE YOU THINK AND BEHAVE IN A CERTAIN WAY. SELF AWARENESS IS HUGELY IMPORTANT AND HOPEFULLY BY FOLLOWING THE TASKS ON THE MIDWEEK MANTRA OVER THE YEARS WE HAVE BECOME INCREASINGLY AWARE OF SELF. THIS IS WHY MEDITATION AND SOUND HEALING IS FAST BECOMING A REGULAR PART OF SO MANY PEOPLE LIFES AS THEY DISCOVER THE INCREDIBLE BENEFITS OF DISCOVERING THE DEEPER PART OF OUR BRAINS.

YOU CAN TALK TO YOUR SUBCONSCIOUS THROUGH YOUR CONSCIOUS MIND.

ITS NOT WHAT OTHERS TELL YOU WHO YOU ARE ITS WHAT YOU TELL YOURSELF THAT REALLY MATTERS. SO PROGRAM YOURS TO BE JOYOUS AND POSITIVE.

NEGATIVITY IS THE ENEMY OF THE MIND. WE ALL KNOW PEOPLE THAT CAN ONLY SEE WHAT IS WRONG IN THEIR LIFE EVEN THOUGH THERE WILL BE POSITIVES TOO THEY PREFER TO DWELL ON ALL THAT IS NEGATIVE, DOING THIS WILL LEAD TO YOU MISSING WHAT IS WONDERFUL RIGHT HERE RIGHT NOW AND LEAD TO A MISERABLE EXISTENCE.

SO TODAY TEAM THERE ARE TWO TASKS TO CHALLENGE YOURSELF WITH:

TASK 1 – TELL YOURSELF WHO YOU ARE. WRITE DOWN 10 GREAT THINGS ABOUT YOU AS A PERSON. THIS NOT ONLY MAKES YOU SELF AWARE BUT MORE POSITIVE ABOUT YOURSELF TOO. HOW OFTEN, IF EVER HAVE YOU GIVEN ANY TIME TO GET TO KNOW YOURSELF AND REALLY THINK ABOUT WHO YOU REALLY ARE ?

TASK 2- OVER THE NEXT WEEK, UNTIL WE MEET AGAIN I WANT YOU TO CHALLENGE EVERY NEGATIVE THOUGHT AND ANY NEGATIVE VERBAL SPEAK WITH A POSITIVE ! THIS MAYBE DIFFICULT IF YOU HAVE PROGRAMMED YOUR MIND TO LOOK AT THE NEGATIVE IN EVERY SITUATION , BUT THERE WILL BE A POSITIVE TO EACH SITUATION AND I WANT YOU TO FIND IT. START RETRAINING THAT CONSCIOUS MIND AND YOUR SUBCONSCIOUS WILL TAKE IT ON BOARD.

I LOOK FORWARD TO MEETING UP WITH MORE HAPPY CONTENTED PEOPLE NEXT WEEK !

MIDWEEK MANTRA ; GO WITH THE FLOW

YOUR WEEKLY SUPPORT BLOG EVERY WEDNESDAY TO INSPIRE AND STRENGTHEN YOUR SOUL SO YOU CAN MEET THE DEMANDS OF THE WEEK AHEAD. WOULD LOVE TO HEAR AND SHARE YOUR COPING MECHANISMS ESPECIALLY THROUGH THESE DIFFICULT TIMES.

FLOW WITH THE UNIVERSE NOT AGAINST IT

EVEN I HAVE HAD RECENT TUMULTUOUS TIMES NORMALLY I AM VERY STRONG AND CAN COPE WITH THE HARDEST OF TIMES BUT WITH ONE THING AFTER ANOTHER I STARTED TO FEEL VERY BATTERED AND BRUISED.

SO AS I PRACTISED KABBALAH TEACHINGS THROUGH TO THE HIGHEST LEVEL SOME YEARS AGO I TURNED TO MY MENTOR, SHIMON FOR SOME WISE ADVICE. THE ADVICE WAS SO RESONATING I WANTED TO SHARE IT WITH ANYONE GOING THROUGH A RELENTLESS ONSLAUGHT OF STRESS RIGHT NOW AND HOPE IT HELPS.

“YOUR INCLINATION IS TO SWIM AGAINST THE TIDE WHEN THE WAVES GET STRONGER, THIS EXHAUSTS YOU AND IT DOES NOT MAKE THE WAVES ANY SMALLER. . SO INSTEAD GO WITH THE FLOW UNTIL THE WAVES DIE DOWN..”

ME: “BUT I WILL DROWN UNLESS I KEEP SWIMMING MADLY”

‘NO YOU WILL DROWN FROM EXHAUSTION. LEARN TO FLOAT AND GO WITH THE FLOW UNTIL THE WAVES DIE DOWN FOR THE WAVE WILL EVENTUALLY CARRY YOU BACK TO SHORE’

THE TRUTH IS MOST SITUATIONS DO WORK THEMSELVES OUT EVEN WITH NO INPUT FROM ONESELF. WHEN THE TIME IS RIGHT. THIS CERTAINLY WAS TRUE FOR ME ONCE I STARTED TO FOCUS ON OTHER THINGS AND STOPPED FUELLING THE FIRE WITH MY ANXIOUS ENERGY IT REALLY DID WORK.

SO IF YOU ARE FACED WITH A DIFFICULT SITUATION ASK YOURSELF DO I NEED TO LET THIS DESTROY MY MENTAL HEALTH WORRYING ABOUT THIS OR WILL IT EVENTUALLY DIFFUSE OR WORK ITSELF OUT. IF YOU CANT CHANGE THE SITUATION GO WITH THE FLOW UNTIL ITS IMPORTANCE DIMINISHES.

OKAY READERS……LETS BE HONEST……..REALLY HONEST HOW MANY OF YOU ARE STILL KEEPING TO THOSE RESOLUTIONS THAT YOU SET YOURSELF ON DEC 31ST ? IT IS AROUND THIS TIME WE DECIDE TO DUMP THOSE GOOD INTENTIONS AND CREEP BACK TO THEIR NAUGHTY HABITS. YOU ARE NOT ALONE. SO RATHER THAN SET YOURSELF RESTRICTIVE GOALS AND THEN FEEL LIKE A FAILURE AND BECOME DOWN ABOUT YOURSELF LET ME SHARE AN IDEA WITH YOU.

I PREFER TO SET MYSELF A MANTRA , ONE SENTENCE OF FOCUS TO IMPROVE MY LIFE AND MY SOUL. CHANT THIS MANTRA EVERY MORNING IN THE SHOWER. IT ALMOST BECOMES A MANIFESTATION WHEN YOU CONCENTRATE THE MIND.

SO TODAY PICK A MANTRA FOR 2022….MINE IS “PUSH THE ENVELOPE” AS I WANT TO PUSH MYSELF OUT OF MY COMFORT ZONE AND EMBRACE THE DIFFERENT AND ADVENTUROUS. 2021 MANTRA WAS “BUILD MORE PLEASURE INTO EVERY DAY.” SO YOU GET THE IDEA.

MANTRA BUILD MORE POSITIVITY AND HAPPINESS WHEREAS RESOLUTIONS CONCENTRATE ON NEGATIVITY AND HARDSHIP.

WRITE YOUR PERSONAL MANTRA IN YOUR GRATITUDE JOURNAL TODAY . REMEMBER EVERYTHING IS MORE POWERFUL WRITTEN DOWN.
